Learn Bronze Medallion

A group of people in the pool learning their Bronze medallion

Royal Life Saving offers a number of lifesaving programs and awards that are offered through schools, pools and community groups. The award scheme has several strands, each with a sequential flow, with awards that can be gained progressively by people of all ages and abilities.

The central component of Royal Life Saving’s lifesaving awards is the Bronze Medallion which has been operating for over 100 years with many Australians undertaking the program since commencement. The Bronze Medallion is considered the pinnacle of the lifesaving awards in the community.

Lifesaving skills learnt and developed through the program are highly regarded in the community and may even lead to or enhance the chances of starting a career. Holders of the Bronze Medallion award are recognised as having gained a minimum standard as a qualified lifesaver.
